Toledo Cargo Ops Questions

Wed Nov 28, 2007 5:00 pm

do cargo ops regularly pick up at TOL during the holiday season.....meaning more different carriers?

does anyone know if QANTAS/Atlas and/or Emirates is still operating 747's to/from TOL?

It depends on how traffic is being routed. UPS will drop a 727 in every now an then during the holidays. BAX pretty much sees the spikes when various contracts spin up - such as the XBOX 360 release and other major Microsoft releases they handle.

The Atlas/Qantas 744F still operates one flight weekly from TOL to SYD with a tech stop in HNL. This flight has been operating for over 10 years and talk is going on about increasing frequencies.

The Emirates/Atlas 744F is doing very well to Hahn/Dubai. Schnecker is wanting to expand the ability to link its European/Asian network with North America, so we may see more flights.

BAX will also be expanding to additional cities in Mexico as well.

Lastly, there will be a half dozen or so 767s come into the fleet to replace DC-8s as they are parked.
